Are you obsessed with make-up?

I am! *raises both hands*

There should be a scale to determine whether you are isn't it?

How I know I am is because I get told this by a tonne of people who know me. I am not even those sorts who get hooked up by every new collection MAC brings out you know. Its just the amount of time, energy and effort one spends on doing a particular thing is what leads to the so called term - obsession.

There is not a single time when I am out in the city, town or the streets where there are shops and I would not have stepped into a Superdrug. You'll find me exploring new makeup-boutiques in my spare time, swatching eye shadows like crazy in Boots or pestering MA's in Selfridges. Friends get tired chasing me out of drugstores and family trying to change passwords for Paypal but I wont give up. I can't just help it! You know how its like right?

What I don't understand is why people don't term this as 'passion' rather than 'obsession'? I never get told I am passionate about make-up, its more like I am obsessed with it. I mean its not that I am a chain smoker or something like that. Then why view it so negatively? I swear even chain smokers are treated more leniently lol.

What people don't get is whatever they say, its not going to cure my 'obsession', because it is NOT obsession. I am just overtly fond of make-up - simple :)

OMG! This rambling just made me the queen of random.

Just something that's always been on my mind. Do you get such vibes regarding your 'make-up obsession' too?

p.s. I have reached a thousand followers guys :D Thanks a tonne to every person who takes the time to follow, read and comment! It keeps us bloggers going ♥ a giveaway is on it way ;)

I wish I could get more into DOING it! I'm so into collection makeup with all the gorgeous colors and different things you can do with it but my lack of 'talent' and money stops me from wearing it so much.

roshas said...

you're so right - i also hate it when people have a bad idea of you just because you wear makeup.. i think its good to make an effort everyday - it shows you're not lazy!!

congrats on 1000 followers - u deserve it ! xx

Oh my geebus! I'm glad you did this entry! I was just having a talk with my gf earlier today, too, about this matter. I DON'T GET IT!!! Ppl just see us as blowing $$$, but honestly...all the money I DO spend is my own HARD-EARNED money. Instead of investing this in alcohol or drugs like some of my friends, I'm just using this as a means to be my creative self. Every day, I feel like I am creating a different "persona" and I am able to role-play who I feel like being, via my make-up or hair. Ppl needa realize that make-up can, in fact, BE A PASSION. Well-said, girl! :)

That is a very nice post. Even I am "passionate" about make-up. Though sometimes I do feel guilty, as frankly I do have too much stuff. :)

Congrats on yr 1000 + followers. You are doing a gr8 job & keep it up :)

Maddy said...

And congrats for 1000 followers

poohkie said...

Hey congrats!

I love this post. So true. Everyone in my family things I'm 'obsessed'. Next time my brother calls me obsessed, I'm gonna ask him if he has anything in his life he's so passionate about? Should shut him up for a while...

Maria Elizabeth said...

Totally agree! I can walk into the pharmacy for medicine and spend an hour looking at makeup. Everyone I know calls me obsessed as well. We're just passionate for makeup! Haha.

Cynthia Z said...

Congrats on yr 1000+ followers girl!

Yes we are all obsessed with makeup...that's why we met. So 'obsession' ain't such a negative after all ;)
